What a shame this doesn't have Micro SD support.

Definitely going to be looking at this one. Only I'll probably buy it from overseas rather than from Telecom (as I did with the 920) and save some denarios.

Am I right in assuming this will not have 4G support?

4G 1800, but I don't see any mention of band 28 LTE 700




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

VERY nice piece of tech! Definitely on my radar to pickup when it's released, It's a shame LTE 700 though.

Feel like this phone is a year late, specs wise.

Could've thrown a Snapdragon 801 in there, or put it off until the 3rd quarter and thrown the beastly 805. SD support?

I keep looking for a reason to switch to WP from Android. This is getting closer. I want to be offered something I don't get on Android.

I agree why does it not have a SD slot. Even just from a marketing point of view, every review you read says it is a wonderfull phone, "but" it doesnt have a SD. Some of them talk about the full HD screen or the wireless charging but they "all" mention the lack of a SD slot. Nokia what are you thinking? This could have been the phone with everything, the one phone to rule them all, but instead it is only almost perfect.

All that said I am going to get one as soon as they are released

Replaced my 1520 with a 930 and loving it. SD card isn't a problem for me, I'm streaming the audio and video I need not stored on the external mSD
